Golden Apple Awards

This article is about the entertainment award. For the educational award, see Golden Apple Award (education).

The Golden Apple Award is an American award presented to entertainers by the Hollywood Women's Press Club, usually in recognition not of performance but of behavior. The award has been presented since 1941 and includes categories recognizing actors for being easy to work with, as well as categories chastising actors for being rude or difficult. Winners of the former include Bob Hope (1941) and Mae West (1969), and winners of the latter include Frank Sinatra (1946, 1951 and 1974), Elvis Presley (1966), and Joan Rivers (1983).[1]

In the 1970s, the format was altered slightly to include recognition of breakthrough actors while continuing to recognize established actors (changed from "most cooperative" to "star of the year") as well as identifying uncooperative actors ("sour apples").

1970 was also the first presentation of the Louella Parsons Award, a lifetime achievement award named for columnist [2].
